Despite La Superior’s promise of traditional Mexican street food, our meal here was frustratingly inconsistent. The alambre de res, a greasy medley of skirt steak, bell peppers, onions and melted cheese, was no greater than its parts, but the fish pibil (tilapia, pickled onions and sweet plantain) had all the bold flavor that the rest of the menu lacked. With no dessert and a BYOB policy, La Superior could stand to serve more dishes that are as intriguing in taste as they are in concept.

I'm from the LA area and grew up with a bounty of Mexican food everywhere I looked, and New York Mexican food just ain't the same. But La Superior is the best Mexican food I've yet found in the city. The place is small and popular, so do be prepared to wait, but the staff is always super helpful and workin' hard. Their tacos are tiny and delicious and about $2.50 each, the tortas are amazing, and you must try the queso fundido. Make sure to order one of the large margaritas (my fave is the jamaica) and be prepared to be seriously tipsy. You won't need another one.
